Articulate 360

Articulate 360 is a powerful tool if you plan on teaching any topic. It can be as simple or complex as you like. You can create a Rise course which has videos, interactive Storyline content, quizzes, interactive images, buttons, and more. It's not necessarily suited for compliance training because it is hard to verify completion.

Pros

  • Articulate 360 has lots of options: Rise is for simple, HTML-based course content delivery. Storyline is an animation/interactive eLearning designer that is robust yet easy to learn.
  • It totally simplifies the review process. When I want to have my boss look at a course I made, I create the Articulate Review link and he can make comments at any point in the course for suggestions/corrections, and the program takes a picture of where he is looking so I know exactly what he is talking about. I can also comment back.
  • The content library is high quality and professional. You can search images of people, backgrounds for Storyline projects, or entire project templates that you just plug your content into. It allows you to create content really fast and good looking.

  • Webcam recording directly into a discussion board or as an assignment is a great way to increase student engagement. There are other systems that do this now but we use Kaltura and it works great.
  • The KMC is very user friendly and makes it very simple to manage the content and system settings.
  • The "Studio" tab enables admins to customize the player with a long list of features. We have branded our player, changed colors, added different buttons.
  • The Kaltura metrics is fantastic. Seeing user engagement of specific users or videos is a huge plus. Instructors can even see metrics from their Blackboard course about the students in that course.

Cons

  • I occasionally have issues with the launcher in 360, and can't get the program to open. It seems to be an intermittent bug on my computer that has to do with being enterprise-locked. The first time this happened, I reached to Articulate's world-class support, who helped me get up and running again. I've been able to fix the issue subsequently by following the instructions provided by the Articulate folks, so I'm happy with that!
  • I would like to see further integration with TinCan API (xAPI) in the platform. Right now, I believe that TinCan is only supported in Storyline, and that the statements it is capable of sending to an LRS system are limited to 6 canned verbs. While that is fine, there is no native support for sending variables directly to an LRS without doing some XML tweaking behind the scenes. I'd like to see Articulate lead the industry in xAPI use cases and support, since I hope that's the direction that the industry is headed.
  • I say this every time I have an opportunity, but I'd love to see Articulate develop a native version for the Mac. I've had some success running Storyline 360 on my Mac with Parallels and VMWare Fusion, but I'd like to free up my system resources to edit video AND develop courses, which is difficult to do when you're running a virtual machine.

  • It would be nice to be able to adjust the player features for specific courses in an LMS.
  • I would like to see a dynamic player in Blackboard.
  • I would like for instructors to be able to add .srt files to their content so they may caption the video themselves in the LMS.

Since we have many terabytes of data currently stored with Kaltura and the system and it works great, it would be very difficult to move to another system.

Alternatives Considered

We didn't look into much else as one of our customers was using Articulate and highly recommended it. It's been great for creation but the lack of included LMS is the sticking point.

We have reviewed other services like Wowza but did not get a chance to use it.

Return on Investment

  • We have been able to turn out content more quickly.
  • We have been able to share with subject matter experts while building courses.
  • We have been able to create more interactive learning and increase knowledge retention.

  • Kaltura has been positive in the sense that we can do some very basic video publishing in our online courses. However, we are very limited in our ability to go further than what we might have been able to do if we had simply recommended to faculty to use YouTube instead. If GSC had the opportunity to make an autonomous decision about which streaming media system to use in Moodle, we would look elsewhere.
